Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. TEEN KIDS NEWS covers a wide range of topics -- from hard-hitting facts about the Iraq war and life after Sept. 11 to ways to tell whether a boy or girl is right for you that are usually specifically tailored toward the teen audience. The show is anchored and reported completely by teens (both boys and girls) from a range of diverse backgrounds. Some topics may be difficult for sensitive younger teens, and some mature teens may find the format corny -- but for most, this series presents a peer-oriented opportunity for them to learn about real happenings in their world. Families can talk about the specific stories that are covered in each episode. Teens interested in a particular topic may want to dig up more information through the Internet or via a trip to the library.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Come spend a 'day in the life' with the monsters at Wimzie's house and you'll never want to go home. It's the magical kind of daycare that leads to delightful adventures for the pre-school child. All of the characters are wild and wooly on the outside - but definitely human on the inside.After spending a half hour in this very special home away from home, no one will leave the world of Wimzie unchanged. It is the world where the real and the imaginary come together, where self esteem is the order of the day, where the emotions and the relationships of today's preschoolers, who are growing up to be ten in the year 2000, are on the top of the list of story material. Five year old Wimzie and her mother Graziella, an airline pilot, live in Yaya's house as does Rousso, Yaya's best friend - even if Yaya is at least one hundred years and fifty years old (and counting) and Russo is much more than a hundred years her younger. Graziella is more than ecstatic to have found a warm and comfortable home as well as a loving environment for her daughter, Wimzie, while she is off on her somewhat unorthodox work schedule flying around the world. It is within this setting that we meet Jonas, Archibald, Loulou, Horace, and Azuline as they work out the relationships that grow out of being together every day, of growing up just a little bit every day. They learn not only about themselves but also about the world outside the door: music, nature, art and fun are woven with a touch of humour throughout a storyline solidly crafted on socio-affective objectives. Music, songs, the art of discovery. Rhymes, magic, the sharing of secrets with friends. Storytime, word games, the acceptance of "your" way. This is what Wimzie brings into the viewers' home. A daycare full of little monsters - what could be more real? Conflict, difficulty, resolution, triumph. Laughter, tears, anger and joy. Wimzie is a world of enchantment.

Come spend a 'day in the life' with the monsters at Wimzie's house and you'll never want to go home. It's the magical kind of daycare that leads to delightful adventures for the pre-school child. All of the characters are wild and wooly on the outside - but definitely human on the inside.After spending a half hour in this very special home away from home, no one will leave the world of Wimzie unchanged. It is the world where the real and the imaginary come together, where self esteem is the order of the day, where the emotions and the relationships of today's preschoolers, who are growing up to be ten in the year 2000, are on the top of the list of story material. Five year old Wimzie and her mother Graziella, an airline pilot, live in Yaya's house as does Rousso, Yaya's best friend - even if Yaya is at least one hundred years and fifty years old (and counting) and Russo is much more than a hundred years her younger. Graziella is more than ecstatic to have found a warm and comfortable home as well as a loving environment for her daughter, Wimzie, while she is off on her somewhat unorthodox work schedule flying around the world. It is within this setting that we meet Jonas, Archibald, Loulou, Horace, and Azuline as they work out the relationships that grow out of being together every day, of growing up just a little bit every day. They learn not only about themselves but also about the world outside the door: music, nature, art and fun are woven with a touch of humour throughout a storyline solidly crafted on socio-affective objectives. Music, songs, the art of discovery. Rhymes, magic, the sharing of secrets with friends. Storytime, word games, the acceptance of "your" way. This is what Wimzie brings into the viewers' home. A daycare full of little monsters - what could be more real? Conflict, difficulty, resolution, triumph. Laughter, tears, anger and joy. Wimzie is a world of enchantment.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. TEEN KIDS NEWS covers a wide range of topics -- from hard-hitting facts about the Iraq war and life after Sept. 11 to ways to tell whether a boy or girl is right for you that are usually specifically tailored toward the teen audience. The show is anchored and reported completely by teens (both boys and girls) from a range of diverse backgrounds. Some topics may be difficult for sensitive younger teens, and some mature teens may find the format corny -- but for most, this series presents a peer-oriented opportunity for them to learn about real happenings in their world. Families can talk about the specific stories that are covered in each episode. Teens interested in a particular topic may want to dig up more information through the Internet or via a trip to the library.
